    I always look at people and think "oh they have really nice such and such"
    I dont really tell them though, but yea its normal.

    I saw a girl today with hair the colour of coffee. It looked so nice. Told her so as well.

    I try to tell people when they look nice/when they've got nice clothes.

    I guess a small part of me wants someone to do it to me, and so I like to do it to other people as well.

    saying it rarely is more valuable than saying it to everyone every minute - try it once in a while though :P doing it never isnt the best :rolleyes:

    I probably give at least one compliment a day - and receive one as well! Just saying "ooo your bag/shoes/hair etc is nice today" makes people reallly cheery. Maybe it's because I live in an all-girls environment and we're just like that.

    Oh and apparently my love language is the "giving of gifts" (so a hippy friend told me) because I leave notes/cards and presents for people.

    i dont like giving compliements to people for the sake of it or if they dont deserve it; which is why i rarely give out compliments. i might think to myself that someone looks good but i wouldnt tell them unless i felt they'd appreciate my compliment. like there are some people who look good all the time and know it and show like they know it and therefore seem arrogant. i definately wouldnt tell them if they looked good or whatever because i hate inflating peoples heads!

    Hmm, I'm gonna take the fact that its just women replying here to mean that it is normal for me not to compliment people. Yay!

    I'm such a consummate ******* that my compliments, infrequent though they may be, are generally all that much better-received.

    It's pretty normal. Although it took ME a while to realised how happy I could make people just by saying something nice about them.

    I do it all the time. I don't think anyone should have so much pride that they can't appreciate things about other people (or express this appreciation)

    I always comment on what people wear and their hair etc.

    All the girls in our block come to me to double check that their outfits look good

    I give compliments sparingly.

    It means people actually listen to them.
